Since I have been recipe testing different air fryer sides lately, I knew I had to try Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries.
Yum Yum…super delicious, crunchy, and easy!
The blend of cinnamon and cumin give them a nice sweet and smoky flavor.
Not many people truly understand my love for french fries, especially sweet potato fries!
How to make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries
This is one large sweet potato right here.
I just cut it into french fry size pieces and left the skin on.
The skin gives a nice texture and also has some health benefits as well.
The sweet potato fries go into a bowl next, along with olive oil, cinnamon, cumin, kosher salt, and pepper.
Then just toss until evenly mixed.
I am a hand mixing type of girl, just tossing them all together with my hands works best for me.
You could also use a pair of tongs if you prefer.
Next transfer them into the air fryer basket in a single layer.
But it’s perfectly fine if some are touching slightly though.
Set the air fryer for 15 minutes at 390 degrees and all that’s left to do is wait for the yumminess!
This is the air fryer I use and love, click to buy from Amazon…
We had ours with Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken, which was perfect timing.
I got the chicken cooking in the oven and then got started on the Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries.
Once there was 15 minutes left for the chicken, I hit the air fryer button and BOOM…everything was ready at the exact same time 🙂
Which is kind of like the cooking version of a Christmas miracle!
You could dip these is ketchup, ranch dressing, or my favorite is Sriracha mayo.
The sweet, smoky, and spicy flavor is out of this world!
